- update Source address
- remove cronie-1.4.7-disable_logging.patch and restore the
original cronie behaviour (a line starting with a dash in
normal user's crontab is handled as incorrect), there was enough
time for crontab migration. Manpage part of the patch was applied
- remove cronie-nofork-nopid.patch (applied upstream)
- pack cronnext utility
- call autoreconf
2017-11-30 -
- Requires mail as it's really needed by cron-crons script, not
smtp_daemon [bsc#1070565] [bsc#1064834]
2017-11-27 -
- Ensure that /etc/cron.{hourly,daily,weekly,monthly} have proper
permissions and owner. This is racy but prevents some LPE vectors
2017-11-24 -
- Requires smtp_daemon (not just Recommends) as it's needed by
run-crons script [bsc#1064834]
2017-11-23 -
- Replace references to /var/adm/fillup-templates with new
%_fillupdir macro (boo#1069468)
2017-08-21 -
- Require group trusted if we use them
